The problem of double diffusive convection in an inclined rectangular enclosure filled with a uniform porous medium at the presence of magnetic field has been studied. The constant temperature and concentration are imposed along two opposing walls, while the other two walls are adiabatic and impermeable to mass transfer. Non-dimensional governing equations are solved using the finite difference method. The representative results illustrates streamline, temperature, concentration and density contours as well as non-dimensional parameters of heat and mass transfer versus changes in magnitude and direction of magnetic field, buoyancy ratio, Darcy number and inclination angle of the enclosure. One of the main results is that average Nusselt and Sherwood numbers and flow characteristics depend significantly on the buoyancy ratio, Darcy number and direction of the magnetic field. Also it is observed that there is a decreasing trend in the average Nusselt and Sherwood numbers with increasing strength of the magnetic field.
